(ADF v2) Oracle DB Source/Azure Blob Sink Throughput very slow


  • I'm working on reading from an Oracle DB view and writing to an Azure Blob sink.

    Though attempting different scenarios for the sink option and evaluating network connectivity, I am getting horrible throughput.

    The IR client (Azure VM) is in the same region and VNet as the source (Azure VM) as well as the Azure Storage network that is being written to. The IR Client is barely utilized and the IR processes are not often above 10% CPU utilization. Total memory is around 25%.

    Any thoughts to troubleshoot this? Does it matter significantly whether the Blob format is JSON vs Text? We aren't seeing issues interacting with the DB in other scenarios.

    IR Client version is 3.5.6639.1 and stating it is current.

  • Hi big_z,

    Have you checked the workload of your Oracle DB with the DBA?

  • Yes, the DB server load has been reviewed.

    From the IR host we can run SQLDeveloper and run the same query with a very good response rate.

    (There is an open case now with MS and the product team is involved - I will update this post based on what I hear back.)

  • Did you ever hear back from MS?  We are having the same issue
